Visiting Zimbabwe

Visiting Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in southern Africa known for its dramatic landscape and diverse wildlife, much of it within parks, reserves and safari areas. Zimbabweans are very warm, friendly people who welcome visitors to their country.

Zimbabwe has the mighty Victoria Falls, once described by Livingstone as “a sight so beautiful that angels must have paused in flight”. Victoria Falls offers a wide range of activities from white water rafting and bungi jumping to serene sunset cruises and cultural experiences.

Downstream are Matusadona and Mana Pools national parks, home to hippos, rhinos and birdlife. Zimbabwe boasts 4 world heritage sights and it’s safaris offer fantastic wildlife. From Hwange National Park in the northwest to Gonarezhou.

Further afield highlights include the Eastern Highlands. This area is Zimbabwe’s answer to Scotland, high forest covered hills and mountains, and trout fishing on misty mornings on well stocked waters. Log fires at night to rebut the chilly air.

Near Masvingo are the famed ruins of an ancient city known as ‘Great Zimbabwe’. The country’s second largest city Bulawayo is steeped in colonial history, provides access to the Matobo hills, huge outcrops of granite which form part of a small national park famed for its black eagle population as well as good sighting of Rhino and other game.
